My baby turned 7 today.
I can't belive it's already been that long since he made me a mommy.
His mommy.

I remember the day like it was yesterday. 
My water broke at 6:00 a.m.  and nearly 18 hours later at 11:24 p.m., with the sounds of Elvis in the background he came to us... and changed our lives forever. 

A tiny 8lbs 5oz {compared to his sister that was born 2 years later at nearly 10lbs} of pure perfection.  Cutest kid I had ever seen!

This year he shared his birthday with our Thanksgiving festivies... just like he did 7 years ago.  He was born the Friday before Thanksgiving, and I have to say the pumpkin pie they served in the hospital was've.ever.had.
I've always wondered about that.  Was it because I was just so happy that everything tasted better once he was finally in my arms!?

Poor kid's balloons kept popping!
It was almost comical.

We keep telling him that turning 7 on the 7th means it'll be his lucky year!
Fingers crossed our promises come true... he deserves only good things!

Happy birthday, little buddy!!

  1. Oh happy birthday to the handsome boy! You are such a good mom and u obviously love your kids lots. My elder daughter is 7 this year too its crazy how time flies x

  2. Happy Birthday to your beautiful son!

  3. Absolutely awesome photos! I have to agree about the hospital food- my 1st meal after having my little Bean was AH-MA-ZING. And I'm not sure if it's because it was actually delicious or because I was starving.

    Thanks for linking up with Monday Mommy Moments :)
    Peacoats and Plaid

  4. Ahh, the photo of your hubby and kids is fantastic, can you photoshop yourself in there?! I remember having some really awesome food in the hospital with Vanessa. She was my second, so I could focus totally on the bliss with no worries to distract me!
